CRITERIA FOR SUCCESS

 A solution has the best chance of success if it complies with the following criteria:

i.

Affordable – Are the implementation and life cycle costs affordable?

ii.

Effective – Does it really work and achieve the goal for which it was intended?

iii.

Replicable – Can the community replicate the solution or will they continually be dependent upon outside providers to keep it going?

iv.

Sustainable – Can the community maintain the solution? E.g. if it is a device, can they afford to buy spare parts, are these spare parts locally available, or can they fix it when it breaks?

v.

Quantifiable – What are the quantifiable outcomes of the solution? E.g. a 50% measured increase in energy sufficiency or a 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

i.

Desirable – Does the community and other role-players in their environment (e.g. industries, government agencies, social institutions) want this solution?

ii.

Beneficial – Does it really benefit the community and other role-players?
